Laboratory measurements indicate that the metastable ions of O in reaction with N2 in the low-energy range 14 eV react to form principally N2 , while the ion molecule reaction to form NO has a very small probability. The ground-state O reacts mainly to form NO. The abundance of metastable O2D ions was determined using the observation that O2D N2 has a small cross section for forming NO. The ion-energy dependences for both reactions were measured within the energy range 1.0 to 500 eV.
